Blogger Artfully Awear said ... (10:12 AM) : 

The red socks perfect this look. Love it!


Blogger bubbs... said ... (10:13 AM) : 

Love the pop of red from the socks! I love this outfit, every guy should wear a bow tie!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:14 AM) : 

love who he looks, great summer suit and the shoes with it are looking totally cool.


Blogger Helena Halme said ... (10:14 AM) : 

Wow, the size of his feet. Very stylish & practical problem to hot summer days.


Blogger Miranda said ... (10:16 AM) : 

I would imagine that he has an interesting personality.


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (10:16 AM) : 

I like the details: the bow-tie, the red sockettes and the gold of his notebook. They work well with the neutrality of his suit.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:16 AM) : 

Love everything about this! The beard, the shorts, the shoes! Keep up the inspiring work, Scott!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:17 AM) : 

Very cool! Love the tie. He has nice legs to wear shorts! Nice!

aside from the beard, he looks like a little boy attending a wedding. Very sweet, aside from the dodgy sock choice.

Old school charm. Gotta love it!

Have a creative day :)

Simply perfect. True Milanese Summer style.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:21 AM) : 

The heavy shoes and hint of red socks really makes the look.


Blogger o l i v i a said ... (10:21 AM) : 

ankle up, yes, beautifully suited. love the stripe of his suit and bow tie but i feel this man needs less serious shoes and better socks to match his playful attire.


Blogger hassia said ... (10:22 AM) : 

Excellent, it's the red socks tat completes it for me.


Blogger Ben Hatke said ... (10:22 AM) : 

Wow. That takes some self confidence. It's like a little boy in his sunday clothes. With a beard.



Blogger clementimes said ... (10:23 AM) : 

My heart melted a little when I scrolled down to see he was wearing shorts- with red socks and the shiny shoes. This man is going places.

So unique! Love that he paired it with red socks.


Blogger Raquel Barbosa said ... (10:40 AM) : 

Seems like a movie scene...peculiar,


Blogger Topaz said ... (10:40 AM) : 

Nice legs. I'll leave it at that.


Blogger Dimitra Chouliara said ... (10:48 AM) : 

The only thing wrong with this look is that he's holding an iphone.


Blogger Eugenia Woods said ... (10:49 AM) : 

I like the whole shorts/suit thing!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:50 AM) : 

I have always wondered why there are no short-sleeved jackets for this look? Always looks a bit top-heavy. Otherwise, likes.



Blogger FASHION SNAG said ... (10:50 AM) : 

Wow, this is a different look. A suit with shorts and red socks with patent brogues. He works it though! Let's not forget the bow tie! x


Anonymous Tom Walker said ... (10:50 AM) : 

Its a very interesting look. I like the socks and shoes!

I couldnt pull it off myself but he seems comfortable which is the main thing.

what a fabulous sense of humor (and style) this guy has. I would walk up and shake his hand.
"Thanks for the smile"...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:52 AM) : 

Unusual. I like the mix of the red sock, the glasses and the beard, fun ! :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:53 AM) : 

What a stylish man.

It's so elegant, but the short pants make it look more relaxed.

I don't like the beard, but the rest of him is really good-looking ;)


Blogger Miss Amy said ... (10:56 AM) : 

Bold! I do love the bow-tie. Not a fan of how short the shorts are. I love seer sucker suits...But something about this look screams Postal Man to me.


Blogger grace said ... (10:56 AM) : 

This photo is perfect. His outfit makes me feel like he owns some magical ice-cream store or that he'll burst out into a broadway song or begin reciting poetry from his book. Classic - loving his red socks bowtie and beard combination especially :)


Blogger Claudia said ... (10:57 AM) : 

What I particularly love about this outfit is the high shine of the shoes (I'm assuming they're patent, but he could be so good as to be able to give them a spit shine himself).

Being able to polish your shoes is a terribly underrated talent.


Blogger Sara Szatmary said ... (11:02 AM) : 

Love the pop of red!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:06 AM) : 

I love the cloth of the suit remind me something pretty 50's/60's!
Don't get the poppers ( as buttons!) an the little socks(???)


Anonymous elxoxodemiprima said ... (11:11 AM) : 

Such a great pic ,as always.Really fantastic.I absolutely adore the way the shorts ads that touch of freshness for the summer and at same time they are a declaration of his irreverence towards the vigent men's fashion establishment.
He nearly blends himself with the surrounding colours, in an almost chamaleonic way to go without being noticed but at same time the sauciness of the socks, the lenght of his pants and the glossy shoes turn him in a statement of elegance, which can not go ignored.


Anonymous Carlo said ... (11:12 AM) : 

Amazing shoes!!!


Anonymous Alessandro said ... (11:15 AM) : 

Nice to see a return to cleanliness. Very nice shoes, but the schoolboy shorts and jacket - while nice on their own - do not combine to make a good look. I would like pair of full length pants and jacket in the same color and fabric (seersucker?), but no bow tie. That said, the gentleman still looks like a gentleman and ceryaoinly exudes friendliness, polite manners and approachability.


Anonymous KatyE said ... (11:15 AM) : 

Love the shoes!!!! However, I am not a fan of men in a suit with SHORTS after the age of 6!

I love the golden notebook near the iPhone and that little socks!

That's a damn good look - especially the shoes and the bow tie

I would've much preferred to see flip-flops on him than those big clunkers.

Even with the red socks, gold notebook, bow tie, and seersucker shorts my eyes went directly to his beard! I'm intrigued by how he looks so unassuming even while dressed so boldly.


Blogger lintmag said ... (11:37 AM) : 

I see Viktor and Rolf and Thom Browne have melted together in the heat of summer...


Blogger beamer said ... (11:39 AM) : 

super cute


Blogger Cormac said ... (11:39 AM) : 

Thank you! It is so delightful whenever I see someone wearing a Bermuda Suit. I'm not sure how I feel about the low socks. They are getting pretty boring at this point. But the Bermuda Suit is indeed a look that should be brought back!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:39 AM) : 

Interesting. Not sure if I like the shoes with this schoolboy ensemble. Maybe some white bucks instead? Looks a bit costumey rather than naturally stylish.


Blogger TheMen'sSide said ... (11:39 AM) : 

Amazing look.
Love it!

Blogger KyleCuviello said ... (11:43 AM) : 

i think thatd be an awesome suit with full length pants... not sure how i feel about showing a little thigh and some red socks with shiny shoes...god bless for being courageous though i guess.

Recicled pants had a big role this season.


Anonymous Catherine said ... (11:53 AM) : 

It will be strange to see a man with this look in Paris but in New York, everything is possible.
I like the shoes and red socks. It's elegant but cool. Accessories is always powerful.
Simply casual minimalism.

The shorts make this outfit in my opinion. A casual detail in an otherwise formal outfit... He pulls it off so well. Love the red socks!

It seems that the jacket+short trousers look was very in this summer in Milan! Saw some guys in similar outfits in mid June in Milan. Very nice!

I actually love this look. The red socks add a little sass to it!


Blogger kelly said ... (1:21 PM) : 

This man looks like he could be a professor, or a scientist with a knack for fashion. I'm not so sure the red socks are working, but it definitely makes for an interesting look. I do, however love the bow tie, and it's not every day you see a man in a shorts suit, so he gets at least ten points for originality.

How charming - and practical.

I have been wearing this look for about 5 years now - I buy summer weight ( seersucker, etc) suits at thrift stores and then simply cut off the pant legs, and then accessories as appropriate for whatever occasion I am dressing for.
I call them my 'mini suits'

Blogger Nemee said ... (2:50 PM) : 

I love this! I'm usually not a fan of guys wearing shorter shorts but this man wears them perfectly. He looks incredibly animated and I love his bow-tie and glasses. The pop of red and shiny black shoes look great.

His look is so funny! Love his jacket, would want it myself actually!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:34 PM) : 

He looks like Pee Wee Herman... except this guy's serious about his look. I'm not feeling the shorts, but with long pants, he would look amazing. The beard and glasses are terrific and the shoes are great as well. I just think the look is forced—just to enough to seem costumey.


Blogger La Petite Anglaise said ... (4:59 PM) : 

Pinstriped, pastel shorts suit... Bowtie... glasses... Brogues and birght red ankle socks...? I am in love with this Milanese maestro. It takes someone with serious style to go for a look this 'out there' and pull it off without looking ridiculous, self-conscious or just plain stupid. This guy doesn't give a damn about trends, season, weather or what anyone else thinks. He is an inspiration to us all. X

The fit of the suit bothers me. The jacket is short and the shorts look like they sit too far up on the waist.

Great colours though.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:05 PM) : 

The hem on the shorts could have been finished better. It seems to me he cut his long pants down.

The suit/short combo highlights how difficult it is to match with the right proportion of sock and shoe. Short socks work on this guy.

i loved this shot at first, and still do, for the shear fact that it is a great photo. Now the fashion on the other hand is slightly laughable... a different choice of shoes would do this poor fellow a world of good! Dorky isn't always great fashion...

Oh my!!! Her looks absolutely fantastic! Fun, fancy and functional...oh gee, if only more were this bold and took their institutionalised looks just a little left of centre. for the safari suit to be resurrected into something slightly hotter than they were in the 70s.


Blogger Manny Perea said ... (2:07 AM) : 

Like the look, but white patent leather shoes would look so much better than these cordovan oxfords. And wouldn't the red socks pop then? Yes, they would


Blogger mannygoat said ... (2:15 AM) : 

Like the look but think white patent leather shoes would look better than the glossy cordovan. The red socks would really pop! then.

Great and interesting pic! But .... May be if you change him from knees to the floor .... Those shoes are grate but not with this outfit. The shoes and red socks make him look like a clown. If you change the shoes for a nice pair of loafers would make a great diference! Socks with short pants? Never, please!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:31 PM) : 

The button exists on a shirt collar band for a purpose; it was meant to be buttoned ("Never a button without a buttonhole," Coco Chanel). A buttoned collar, however, requires impeccable fit. When a bespoke shirt is buttoned there is nothing more chic.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:44 AM) : 

I remember Yohji Yamamoto and Matsuda doing these shorts suits in the late 80s. (One of them even had a short sleeved jacket!) I thought it looked pretty awkward then, and I'm still not convinced now. To me it's counter-intuitive. I'd probably be more inclined to remove my jacket and roll up the sleeves on a hot day than to mix shorts and a jacket. But I guess it almost works on this dude because of the beard...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:08 AM) : 

One has to have reasonable legs to pull this off! The dude in the picture has that.

Ah, Angelo Flaccavento, the most stylish man on the planet. That said, he IS a fashion journalist (and an Italian one at that) so perhaps he should be. The thing that strikes in photos of him is that he's always alone. Which seems so sad. I'll be your bff Angelo!

Blogger Kevin Cashman said ... (2:42 PM) : 

I think he might be hitting way too many style trends to actually be pulling this off:

- the short socks with big shoes
- the shorts as part of a suit
- seersucker
- the beard
- the red string bracelet
- the moleskin notebook

it seems to me to create the net effect of trying too hard and he looks like he might even be a little uncomfortable.

Reminds me too much of the Martin Short movie, Clifford.

I kept scrolling through the comments looking for the name "Thom Browne," but I didn't see it. With all due respect to this very probably lovely man, what about his outfit, other than perhaps the gold notebook, is not straight out of Thom Browne? Honestly, I see absolutely no sense of PERSONAL style, just plenty of THOM BROWNE style.

Oh, an italian Angus Young. I like the suit, bow tie and red socks, but the shoes look two sizes too big on him and the shorts look - well, silly. A few commentors note that he is rocking a school/sunday school vibe. Its' cute on little boys, but otherwise unmanly even with the beard. It's fashion-forward and fun to see, but for me, it also a miss.
